billy and mickey got it started(read barlow's statement about the meeting)bob ran his mouth and got blamed for the whole thing,phil,billy and mickey left him hangin.according to barlow two people where against it him and hunter,bobby gets the shit for speaking without a lawyer like the other members plus the short cutoffs didn't help.all in all it was the band's choice.i was pissed to start but realize the sbd are the bands property.glad it happen,i've met a lot of great people since the ban.enjoy the streams and support the band with the upcoming shows they will be putting out in years to come.lots of good stuff to come.

those first 2 pics are great-thx. Do u think Jer ate anything? Don't see any ice cream there! I don't know about great things to come. The only thing I would ? is does any of the 5 guys REALLY need any money. I'm not talking about extended (wife+kids only) family. If they can live they should stick to their roots-which is what we KNOW Jer would have wanted.

Thanks Tiger, great pics! In 98(?) for Hale-Bopp I was living in a very rural part of AZ... Absolutely no light pollution and a very wide horizon. Would watch it rise from the front porch and then lay in bed and watch it through my skylight! Was a great Flyin' Zion Easter that year too!

Well put. As far as I'm concerned I am grateful to have had as much access as we did for so long. Like you say, having to work a little harder now to get sbds just means new opportunities for creating bonds with new people.

I have absolutely no problem with the boys getting some extra cash in their late years. They gave us all kinds of joy for prices well below market value for years and years and years.

but ...

Who the hell is their advisor on this ???

All these live shows, organized on one site, with the ability to download, would get enough hits on a daily basis to rake on all the cash they want.

Half of serious Dead fans didn't even start visiting this site until the soundboard shows were banned (from recording). The potential audience is huge.

Sorry, but a bad business decision by the gang.

They should have got together with archive.com if they wanted to monetize this stuff.

Note to all who visit this site - Get the message to Bob and the rest of the gang. We will gladly visit sponsors who advertise on a Grateful Dead site that allows downloads of all shows!!!!!

btw ... was just listening to Spectrum 3.30.87 .... such a nice baby blue. yes, we have all heard it enough, but ...

it's beautiful.
